The best in Ohio's abandoned buildings, weird history, and restless spirits!

Ohio & Erie Canal

Lock 36 – 17 Mile Lock

The concrete remnants on the far side of today’s trail bridge are the wing walls walls of Lock 36 which had been buried in the 1950s.

A feeder channel was built here at Lock 36 to bring water form the Cuyahoga River into the canal.

The feeder still provides water for the longest remaining watered section of the Ohio & Erie Canal.

A mud catcher was built to hold back silt and debris that might clog the canal.
